Neil Armstrong & The Apollo 11 Moon Landing, True or Fake?

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Apollo 11 Moon Landing Crew: Neil Alden Armstrong, Michael Collins, Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr.Forty years have passed since we got shocked by the controversial news of successful Apollo 11 landing on the Moon. Is it true that astronauts Neil Armstrong was the first man on history of human kind had set foot on the Earth's satellite? Questions continue to accompany the story of the Apollo 11 mission and its landing on the surface of the Moon on 20 July 1969.

The Apollo 11 mission was the first mission conducted by U.S that to land human on the Moon surface. It was the fifth human spaceflight of Project Apollo and the third human voyage to the Moon. It was also the second all-veteran crew in manned spaceflight history.

Launched on July 16, 1969, it carried Mission Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon, while Collins orbited above.

Then, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin walking on the surface of the Moon. Video depicts Armstrong put the U.S. flag and jump around. This action emphasizes the human success of landing on the Moon.

Several parties dispute the landing. The video clip stated as full of curiosity. Some said that the video was not made on the Moon, but in a special place in the vicinity of the State of Arizona, USA.

Astronom Phil Plait, gave an explanation on the radio program "Are We Alone", which is managed by SETI Institute, a non-profit organization in California U.S., which focus on the explanation of the existence of the other beings in the universe.

Plait said, there are some parties skeptically questioning pictures, photos, images of Armstrong and Aldrin that shows the sky without stars. "There is no atmosphere on the moon so the stars should look brighter than on earth."

The skeptical question is also about the U.S. flag in the video snippets that appear to flapped, the moon does not have air. They also propose a theory that the astronauts may have been seared by radiation when penetrate the Van Allen belt and could not have survived the trip because of exposure to radiation from the galactic ambient radiation in travel to the Moon.

Matter of fact, belief in the moon landing was already weakened in the last few years. This issue emerged again when in 2001 Fox TV broadcast a program titled "Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?"

The Fox TV show, said Dr. Tony Philips, on the Science@NASA site, describing how the US's NASA is not more than simply "the moronic film producer."

Neil Armstrong Apollo 11All doubt was often answered Directly by Armstrong, Apollo 11 mission commander. Armstrong who was born in Wapakoneta, Ohio, 5 August 1930, with the astronauts Buzz Aldrin admitted enjoying the surface of the Moon for 2.5 hours.

On the moon, they both drive in the U.S. flag and a banner reads "Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon. July 1969 AD. We came in peace for all mankind."

Not only Americans are proponents of the hoax theory. A 2000 poll conducted by the Russian Public Opinion Fund found that 28 percent do not believe that American astronauts have been on the Moon and this percentage is roughly equal in all social-demographic groups.

A 2009 poll conducted by the British Engineering & Technology magazine found that 25 percent do not believe that man has walked on the Moon. For the U.S., Apollo 11 landing on the Moon is a great achievement that made the U.S. seems to excel it's main competitor, the Soviet Union, in the space program.

One of the competitors for the U.S. at this time, Russia thought, the conspiracy theory and Apollo Moon Landing hoax in 1969 is becoming increasingly popular. Russia even has created a number of sites and documentary films on television to deliver the Apollo Moon Landing hoax.
